Liquid Penetrant testing

Liquid Penetrant testing


Test object or material is coated with visible or fluorescent dye solution. Excess dye is removed from surface and dry developer acts as blotter, drawing penetrant out of imperfections which open to the surface. Within visible dyes, vivid color contrast between penetrant and developer makes ،،bleed outۥ ′ easy to see with florescent dyes, Ultraviolet light is used to make bleed out fluoresce brightly thus allowing imperfections to be seen readily.
This course is designed to provide the participant with an understanding of the fundamental theory and applications of Liquid penetrant testing methods to engineering materials.
